Name the Library Foundation in Your Will

Make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime and transforms the lives of others.

Why make a planned gift to the Anchorage Library Foundation?

By naming the Anchorage Library Foundation as a beneficiary in your Will, Trust or retirement plan, you can make an investment to ensure that our community has a strong and vibrant public library for future generations. Gifts come in many sizes – you don’t have to be rich to make a difference. You can designate a set amount or a percentage of your estate or retirement account.

Gifts to the Library Foundation help make our library special by funding new library buildings and equipment, and sponsoring exciting new projects like early literacy learning labs.

Consult your financial advisor to find the planned gift that best fits your situation. If you have specific wishes for how to direct your gift, please contact us so we can ensure that we are able to honor your wishes.
